Which bob do you like best?

Bobs are great because they come in so many different shapes and sizes... and textures! From super curly to stick straight, there are a whole lot of options to choose from, should you decide to make the cut. Two of our favorite bob looks are sleek and tousled.

The question is, which one would you wear?

2 for 1

Once you have a bob cut of your very own, there's no real need to choose between these styles. With the right products on your side and a few spare minutes in your morning routine, you can have it all!

1/ Sleek & stylish

Simple yet effective, the sleek bob is perennially in vogue (and editing Vogue) thanks to its versatility and totally pulled-together finish.

To get the look: Spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray to dry hair and flat iron. Part your hair wherever you feel looks best then comb the hair through to fix it in place. Complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and keep flyaways at bay.

If you need a polished style for work, this bob could be perfect for you.

2/ Tousled chic

Tousled hair has been trending for a while now and we think the laid back texture looks especially good with a bob cut.

To get the look: Spray Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout then blow-dry in large twists. Alternatively, you can pin it all up in a couple of loose micro buns to air dry. Once dried, shake it all out and scrunch a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends.

If you're a wash and go kind of gal, this approach might be your best option.

What do you think? Which look gets your vote?
